From the Producer: "Veteran winemaker Nick Goldschmidt has never been one to do things the same old way, especially when it comes to winegrowing and winemaking. In a very pedigreed neighborhood, such as Oakville, the challenge is to offer ultra-premium Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon at below market value. Nick Goldschmidt has done just that with Rendition: the classic taste of Oakville without the classic price. Loads of ripe, juicy fruit and soft, supple tannins framed in toasty French Oak. Discover Oakville while breaking away from its plush conventions. Rendition vineyard lies at the junction of Oakville Cross Rd. and Route 29. Oakville isn’t too hot; it isn’t too cold. It’s just right. The coolness of the south meets up-valley warmth in perfect equilibrium. That’s why Cabernet Sauvignon from Oakville so perfectly expresses the essential qualities of the varietal in deep, complex wines that can last for decades.
Rich and elegant with blueberry, dried cherry, violet, and forest mushroom aromatics; savory, bright red current flavors are accompanied by blackberry, raspberry, and spicy oak. The wine wraps the tongue. Medium-bodied, round, and soft with a smoked black peppercorn finish. Drink now and over the next 20 years."
